Thisstatement was erroneous in that Icould not accept the proffered positionowing to the conflict with the constitu¬tion of The Daily Maroon which ex¬cludes a senior member of the stafffrom holding a publicity position.“I regret the fact that my namewas published in that capacity althoughI was willing to help the Settlementdrive to the utmost in my capacity asnews editor. 1 will do as much forany other organization."Walter G. Williamson Scientists At Yorkes ObservatoryWatch Actions Of Nine CometsCONTINUE FEDERATIONCOUNSELLOR SYSTEMFOR WINTER QUARTER Records at the Yerkes observatoryof the University show that ninecomets are now visible through Yerkestelescopes and are at present underobservation by Prof. G. Van Bies-'broeck of the University staff. Theyear is characterized by Prof. EdwinB. Frost, director of the observatoryas an “open season for comets.”Prof. Frost explains that the planetsmove under the gravitational controlof the sun. Several of the periodiccomets that came back this year haveperiods of six or seven years and arestrong evidence that the pull of theplanet Jupiter has operated to bringthem into their comparatively smallorbit. Ten comets have been foundthis year, and Ttuttle’s comet is ex¬pected. It may be detected before the close of 1925, Prof. Frost says.Among the astral marauders ob¬served in Williams Bay where the ob¬servatory is located, are a new cometdiscovered by Prof. Van Biesbroeck,when he was looking for a comet firstvisible in Poland, and a comet locatedby an amateur astronomer Peilter, ofDelphos, Ohio. The latter is said tobe moving across the sky at a rate ofabout four degrees a day. It is nearlyvisible to the naked eye, according toProf. Frost, and will become so if itshould brighten up in a moonless sky.“We cannot yet state whether itwill come nearer and get brighter, fora comet is already close to the earthas we may judge from Rs rapid mo¬tion. This one might be a", close asthirty million miles.”SERVE LUNCHEON ATY. W. C. A. ANNUALCHRISTIAN BAZAARLuncheon will be served in con¬nection with the Y. W. C.

Each yearthe. country uses three-fourths billiontons of coal, one-half billion barrelsof oil, and 700.000.000 cubic feet ofgas.

In 1873 she was mar¬ried to Justin A. Smith.

Commonusage has been determined with exact¬ness and the early grades learn themost common words, the later grades,those which occur with less frequency.Improve Reading“Reading is taught today in sucha way that pupils read more fluentlyby far than did the pupils of earliergenerations. Improvements in themethods of teaching reading have beenmade possible through scientific studieswhich have revealed a great manyinteresting facts about the way inwhich people read.

EvenBorah, who is opposed to the Leagueand all international political relations,has been moved ‘by the importance ofthe issue and has come forward with aworthy plan.Propose Plans For CourtPresident Harding was the firstleader in this country to advocate theCourt strongly, and with Hughes, drewup a plan under which the UnitedStates could enter. Coolidge favoredthis plan and by suggesting anotherproposal, formed what is now knownas the “Harding-Hughes-CoolidgePlan.” Thirty peace leaders in theUnited States drew up the “HarmonyPlan” by taking the Harding-Hughes-Coolidge terms and adding to themconsiderably.

The ballot, sponsoredby the Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A., is ready for you. A dele¬gate, sent by the Y. M. C. A., will represent you at the conferenceat Princeton. If your answer is vigorous, it will have considerableinfluence on the national opinion. Your vote, along with the votestaken at the other colleges and universties, will receive wide publicityin the newspapers of the country. The country is concerned withyour opinions.
